Today’s card is pretty much as easy as it can get.  The Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper is almost always a starting point for me in creating a card.  I worry that it may be too often!  But the beauty of the paper cannot be denied.  Today I have made a #simplestamping card using the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.


Stampin' Up!, Hydrangea Hill, Oval Occasions, #simplestamping, Jackie Beers


This piece of the DSP has this pattern along the top and the bottom of a 12 X 12 sheet.  The middle section is the gorgeous light blue background.  I cut the sheet 5 1/8 X 3 7/8 and made four cards exactly like this one.   I pulled the card base and layer colors from the paper.  The card base is Gorgeous Grape with a layer of Purple Posy added in.

The only stamping on this card is the sentiment.  It is from the Oval Occasions stamp set.  The stamp set is retiring but , thankfully, the Double Oval Punch is carrying over.  I stamped the sentiment using Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I debated on adding a few embellishments but this is a #simplestamping card.  So I stayed true to the Stamps, Ink, and Paper theme.  Simple cards can , and are, very pretty and I believe this card shows that very well.

The measurements for this layout are also quite simple.  The base card is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, the layer is 5 1/4 X 4, and the DSP is 5 1/8 X 3 7/8.  I have the supplies at the bottom of the post.  I believe this is the smallest supply list I have posted!  LOL!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fun weekend whatever you may be doing.
